Really strange. I feel bad for Humu, as only one of those Humus was really good. And only 1 good version out of 3 is probably the worst stretch ever Humu went through. Dunno why they tried to shoehorn this song into this kind of role. Not much going on in Humu or the Don jam proper, but the breakdown in the middle of Don gets a lot weirder than usual.
The -> Cyclone -> Ladies is real solid. I love how they fake out the Ladies ending before crushing into the beginning. I think they've done that a few other times, and it rules each time. Much better than jamming into the funky part that follows. The -> Abraxas clearly highlights the second set, but man, it's a shame how these jams keep feeling so aimless! It's like "Allen, just untz away, we'll throw a bunch of shit at the wall and eventually something might stick"
It's unfortunate to say, but Fall 07 seriously flamed out at times. Especially on NYE Run.
First set though? Sgt. Peppers is an odd choice for a cover, especially one to play 3 times in 5 shows. But they tack a jam on, and it's basically just a 6 minute Plan B jam before the 25 minute Plan B that's tracked out. So that's a beautiful thing. You could call a "Magellan Fakeout" and it wouldn't be inaccurate, but they're just so similar. It's like talking B&C teases in Kamaole, or Story/42/RLH teases in RLH/42/Story. Same jam. etc.
By itself, the Plan B is better than the rest of this show combined. I can't even imagine arguing with that. Whereas the second set is ostensibly a "dance party" it seems almost completely devoid of ideas. This Plan B is just *BURSTING* with fresh inspiration. The backdoor segue into Rock Candy is freakin sweet as well. Rock Candy probably should have gone for the ending right at 7:30 instead of dropping back down and dragging it out to no real effect though. Would have came off a lot stronger without the last few minutes of filler.
The DTTB stays pretty tight in the jam jam, but the ending jam is freakin incendiary.
Set 1? B+/A-
Set 2? C-
Overall rating is just a C+ though, they really fail to capitalize on the momentum of the 1st set which is the best set of the NYE run.
Subject: SET 2.
p.s. driving in philly is a pain in the ass. got lost for hours and made it to the show during Rock Candy :(
Thick and crisp.
